glazed stoneware

impressed with artist's seal

Overall in excellent condition. The ceramic glaze presents with very minor imperfections inherent to the making and to the artist’s technique. The underside of the rim presents with small dripping to the glaze, inherent to the making and not visually distracting. This lot has been inspected under UV light and presents with no apparent sign of prior restoration.

Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby’s is merely a subjective qualified opinion.
